Bridge Worlds: Deep Flux Reviews
Maybe I'm just getting overwhelmed by Bridgeworlds--this is the third in a row I've read from the series, and I did not feel it was as good as the other two, Bridgeworlds: Keep Solstice https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... and Bridgeworlds: Rise of the Magi https://www.goodreads.com/review/show....I do think may have read them out of sequence, because it is clear that events toward the end of this book prefigure the events of Keep Solstice (the Gauntlet is created in this book, which figures significantly early in that one). However, these might be subsequently-written prequels, and in a sense if we take them first they leave quite a few questions unanswered regarding that book, or perhaps more specifically about what occurs between the two.This, though, is very definitely sequel to Rise of the Magi, picking up the threads from those characters and plot lines and bringing most of them to reasonable resolutions. The main characters of that book are now separated into their own stories, touching each other occasionally but mostly developing independently.The strong Christian connections are still here, as more characters are delivered from various curses by the Christ figure who is not merely metaphorically the same but blatantly stated to be so. On the other hand, we are told that these universes are entirely the dreams of comatose humans in the real world, the people in them some avatars of those dreamers, some figments of their imaginations, and some real people who have crossed gates into the dream world. Because of this, some of the real people and some of the dreamers have the power to alter the dream by will--a very New Age concept about the real world which some Christians will find objectionable even within the context that this really is not the real world but a dream.There are a number of battles within the book, but mostly the story is character development, as people come together and learn more about themselves and each other. It is solid character development, and the Christian concepts are well-integrated into the fantasy of the story without losing their reality.It is again a book I might recommend, and might re-read someday, but not one over which I am highly enthused at this moment. I enjoyed reading it, certainly, but did not think it more than a decent book. As I say, though, I have been somewhat saturated with Bridgeworlds of late, and might have enjoyed it more had I read something else in the interim.
*SPOILER ALERT*Im not giving major spoilers but still, be warned.Deep Flux has all the imaginative creativity of Rise of the Magi and the worlds of Musterion and Soterion (adding a new alternate dimension). So what's new? Why read the sequel? Several reasons:1. The finding Misaki plotline is resolved2. It tells of the redemption of another of the major characters3. Jack Raven is introduced as a main character, he was a minor character in Rise of the Magi but he is a major part of the story in Deep Flux4. When I read Rise of the Magi I could enjoy the story for what it was... A truly imaginative story. But I have noticed the author has taken the few complaints about showing not telling that were listed very seriously. I am a firm believer that sometimes you just need to tell. And there is SOME telling in the novel but not half as much in Rise of the Magi. There is greater detail given to the surroundings but the plot still moves at break-neck speeds which I liked.
Definitely worthy of more than 5 Stars! The only reason I didn't finish this book in one day was that I get carried away doing other things else I would have. So many worlds, so many different species it makes your head spin. I've become more and more enthralled with the religious overtones of the book though they are not overwhelming. I can't wait for the third book to see if evil will finally be defeated. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes Fantasy, SciFy, Steampunk and Christian fiction.
